Some days are so windy that even the angels lose their balance from the top of City Hall. It's always a day like this when The Flying Orchestra blows into town . . .

Whether we're up or down, at work or play, or just going about our day, the flying orchestra always plays for you.

A multi-layered text which cleverly explores the abstract concept of music for young children. The Flying Orchestra discusses the idea that music is all around us, telling the story of our lives. It is a work with great heart and stunning illustrations from a much-loved author and encourages both children and adults to think outside the box.
